A bustling business hub called the "Silicon Valley of Mexico", Guadalajara is a growing city that still offers enough culture and quality of life to make it a magnet. Like all big cities across the world, the capital of the State of Jalisco is fighting its own battle against growing traffic and environmental pressure.
Juarez during rush hour is an uninterrupted stream of people running through Guadalajara's central underground station. Passengers arrive from every direction, over bridges, down stairs and escalators, all crowding together on the platforms. The trains of the Tren Ligero light rail system arrive at intervals of a few minutes, allowing passengers to alight and others to board.
Like many other cities, Guadalajara has committed itself to meeting mobility demand by expanding public mass transit with efficient rail systems. Bombardier Transportation has been one of the Mexican mass transit company SITEUR's (Sistema de Tren Eléctrico Urbano), key partners since its launch in the 1980s.
«In Jalisco, there has been about 30 years of abandonment in mobility matters. That is, there was never a plan, there was never a design. Now there is, and the backbone of this plan is SITEUR and its light trains.» RODOLFO GUADALAJARA GUTIÉRREZ, GENERAL DIRECTOR OF SITEUR
